Features and Ease of Use
You might be surprised at what a complete service Mihan host offers as an Iranian hosting provider. They provide all of the following:
- Domain registration services
- Free SSL certificates
- Backup services
- Free monitoring services
- Free migration services
- Email management
They also provide a number of add-on support services and plan-specific features that can be of great help when setting up your hosting solution:
- Web Development and Design: You can either create your site through the free access provided to SiteBuilder or enlist their web design/development services to create a site based on your specifications. This includes WordPress services and branding services.
- Laravel Hosting: Laravel is an increasingly popular framework used in web applications. Mihan provides solutions that are geared toward Laravel users/developers.
Mihan offers a surprisingly modern platform for their hosting and other services. Depending on your hosting, you’ll have access to either the Plesk or cPanel consoles which are two of the best right now. They also offer SiteBuilder or WordPress support services to help you build your site. They’ve also created a signup process where you select the features you want in order to simplify your choice of pricing plans.
Pricing and Support
There are almost too many types of hosting and pricing plans to consider on Mihan. The biggest distinctions between them are if the data centers are located in Germany or Iran, Linux or Windows OS, and whether you want a managed solution or not. However, each type of hosting follows a very similar pricing structure with five plans. Here is what they offer in terms of web hosting:
- German/Iranian cPanel Hosting
- German/Iranian Linux Hosting
- German/Iranian Windows Hosting
Individual plans usually differ regarding storage space, monthly bandwidth, and databases (if applicable) with many plans offering unlimited bandwidth. Most plans also come with a Free SSL certificate.
They also offer a range of dedicated server products with many of the same options as the hosting products and include:
- Managed servers
- Dedicated servers
- Virtual Private servers
There are also specialist options for hosting solutions with intense backup or download needs as well as reseller hosting. Some plans offer either annual or quarterly billing, however, there aren’t any monthly options. Across the board, prices are very competitive, especially the German servers.
Mihan offers support services through a ticketing system and phone lines. If there is a problem with the infrastructure, they will regularly provide news updates on their site so that everyone can follow what’s happening. They respond to tickets as well as phone calls 24/7 and you shouldn’t have a problem getting through. However, support is only offered in Iranian.
